Today, I am simply promoting a book I have contributed to, and will advise of the launch at a later date.
Here is a snippet of what it says on the flyer:
“Learning life from illness stories brings together the stories of fourteen people who have lived with serious illness, either their own of that of a loved one. The authors reflect on the wisdom they have found in the stories of others, especially, as a common text, Illness: the cry of the flesh by Havi Carel. They respond to Carel’s key questions: Can I be ill and happy? How can I have a good life while living with illness?
The authors share their own experiences of pain, grief and despair, and of love, hope, seeking happiness, writing poetry, practising yoga, praying and protesting. This is a book about courage, about finding strength and sources of joy in hard times. It will inspire anyone seeking meaning in the chaos of their own difficult circumstances.”
